Full description
From Santiago de Compostela, you will head to the wonderful city of Lugo, a city recognized by its incredible Roman wall that surrounds it. A 1.5-hour guided tour will take you around the historic center, giving to the chance to discover the famous wall, a practically intact Roman wall, the cathedral, as well as simply wander around and get lost in this old city. Afterwards, you will head to the beach of Aguas Santas, or as it is popularly known, Playa de las Catedrales (Cathedrals Beach), due to the large rock formations that evoke the flying buttresses of the Gothic cathedrals. Take advantage of the low tide to enjoy the rock formations made by the erosion of the sea. This is one of the most beautiful enclaves of Galicia!

A well organised tour with very knowlegdegable and friendly guides. The covid sanitization measures were well thought out. Could have spent a little more time on the beach and skipped the town we went to for lunch. Though I dont know what was available as food on the beach!

Visita cómoda y agradable. Buena guía que informo de muchos aspectos históricos, sociales y culturales de los lugares que visitamos. Una forma cómoda de ver la playa de las Catedrales, la muralla y el casco histórico de Lugo y pasear y comer en Ribadeo

Excelente experiencia, un día completo con dos guías de primera María y Antón que nos acompañaron en todo momento con sus explicaciones, en la visita al centro de Burgos con Antón fue extraordinaria con sus explicaciones detalladas y amenas que nos enriquecieron con su conocimiento más que sobrado. También decir que el día acompañó en todo el Tour.
